  • Ta for your thoughts folks - and, yes, that's it Mike. Interesting viewpoints and I do agree that it's the photographer not the camera etc etc - I keep telling myself that one of the most enjoyable ...
  • This isn't a question or asking for an opinion, it's just an observation about my mindset before entering a competition and wondered if others shared my feelings (OK, maybe it is a question!)? I'm ...
  • Great stuff - glad you labelled the young starling, I had to think what that was - we hardly see any in the garden these days. entirely agree re lens, it is a bit 'slow' but seems to me ( I'm no ...
  • Can't really disagree with that review - new one to me. So why do I (and others) commit to the system, as I have done - difficult to argue a case on 'technical superiority' as many reviews have stated.
  • I'd like to see Nikon announce the fact that there will be a V4.
  • Replied in D750 or 'V4'?
    Just to add to previous comments without repeating as they really say it all. I had the D300 which, like you, I loved but I had to be honest that it was gathering dust after the D7100 arrived - but ...
  • Brilliant! Thanks for that. I have meant to wade through my book on S.African birds since returning home but never quite got round to it! I see you're based in Knysna - my sister-in-law has a place ...
  • Replied in Says it all!
    pda4you, above, says it all - my experience is almost the same, difference being I started with a fire sale V1 and then went to V3 'in place of' my D7100. I won't sell the latter, and I am ...
  • Yes, as I'm sure you know that's a Mousebird and they are (in)famous for not being the brightest bird in the aviary - and it shows! Another one that amused me was this one (must be honest, I don't ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery
  • Your question about using the 70-300 on a V1 body prompted me to do that this morning on a walk around the Calke Abbey grounds, near Derby. Subjects are nothing special but hopefully will give a ...

  • Thanks for your comments - the black and white bird is a pied kingfisher which stubbornly wouldn't turn around for me, but I quite like the effect anyway! Taken from a car on a bridge in the ...
  • Replied in Agree re 70-300
    Welcome to the N1 club - I would echo all previous comments on this (and other) thread - it has become my main system after relegating a D300 and latterly a D7100 to the shelf. pda4you mentioned ...
  • C'mon - is that the best you can do for a reply? Canon guys should do better than that - you're letting the side down. 'Waaaaa' is so last century darling - a bit like current Canon DSLR sensors...

  • I love it when guys with sackfuls of Canon gear seem to have nothing better to do than post pointless comments about Nikon gear and somehow expect others to 'defend' stuff. Why would I do that?...

  • Define 'serious photographer', 'serious lens' and 'serious photographs' and we'll see where that takes us.
  • No point in attempting to justify the N1 system to dark goob, it just feeds the mania and the need to be 'edgy'.

    I console myself imagining dark goob as a photography superhero sitting in front of...

  • No viewfinder, no RAW - looks like Nikon didn't bother with Thomas' opinions when they produced it. Strange.

  • Or make comments like that
